Test 1 will cover the material presented in modules 1-3.

You must be able to:

- Mathematically describe a sinusoidal wave and know the relationships between wavelength, frequency, and speed.
- Qualitatively describe electromagnetic waves.
- Identify different regions of the electromagnetic spectrum.
- Calculate diffraction patterns produced by a single slit, two slits, and a diffraction grating.
- Calculate the energy and momentum of the photons associated with an electromagnetic wave of a given frequency.
- Find the deBroglie wavelength of free particles.
- Use the uncertainty principle to do simple calculations.
- Work with complex variables, convert complex numbers from rectangular to polar form and from polar to rectangular form and add, subtract, multiply and divide complex numbers.
- Convert from spherical to rectangular coordinates and vice versa.
- Verify solutions to the time-independent Schroedinger equation.
- Calculate energy levels an transition frequencies for a 1D infinite square well.
- Calculate the energy level of the hydrogen atom and hydrogenic atoms and interpret the emission spectrum of hydrogen
- Predict possible outcomes of measurements of the electron spin and discuss consequences and applications.

Prepare for the test by reviewing assignments 1-9.

The practice test is on Blackboard. You can take this practice test as often as you want. No record of your score will be kept.

You may use a print-out of these formulas during the test. You may also use a printout of the front inside cover of your textbook. These printouts will be provided.

The problems on the practice test are very similar to the problems you will find on Test 1.
